(a) Each life settlement provider shall file with the Commissioner on or before March 1 of each year an annual statement containing such information as the Commissioner may prescribe by rule or order. Information relating to life settlement transactions shall be limited to only those transactions where the policy owner is a resident of this State. Upon proper request by the filer, the Commissioner shall keep confidential trade secret information exempt from public inspection and copying under 1 V.S.A. § 317(c)(9). The annual statement shall not contain individually identifiable life settlement transaction information, but such information shall be provided to the Commissioner pursuant to section 3840 of this title. If available to the provider because of the provider's business relationship or affiliation with one or more life settlement purchasers, the annual statement shall also include such information as the Commissioner may prescribe by rule or by order concerning life settlement purchase agreements or similar investment contracts entered into by residents of this State.
(b) A life settlement provider, life settlement broker, insurance company, life insurance producer, information bureau, rating agency or company, or any other person with actual knowledge of an insured's or a policy owner's identity shall be subject to the department's Regulation No. IH-2001-I "Privacy of Consumer Financial and Health Information," as amended.
